Football is an emotional experience and the best way to let yourself go is together with fellow fans. Add a nice surrounding such as the Corinthia Hotel Budapest’s World Cup Sky Terrace and the score of the game you’re watching on high-definition TV could almost become secondary.
Even if you don´t particularly like football, the World Cup Sky Terrace could be the place to be, with its three bars high above the city awaiting fans when the World Cup big kickoff arrives on 12 June: Tribune Lounge, Copacabana Bar and the Goal Grill will be taking care of hungry and thirsty patrons.
All three bars will offer different food and drinks and in fact a different décor as well, so fans can try them all before deciding where best to watch their favourite teams battle it out in Brazil until the final on 13 July.
Matching the 32 teams will be 32 special dishes and some special cocktails to go along with them. “An extensive menu will be available throughout the World Cup and in addition there will be nation-related dishes served on the day their team is playing,” says Gábor Döry, the Corinthia’s Director of Communications.
The matches will be shown on seven high-definition TVs and Döry believes there will be something to watch for every fan. If there are two matches at the same time they can be watched on different TVs. There will also be roundups of earlier games.
To increase excitement during the tournament the World Cup Sky Terrace will enable viewers to guess the outcome of the match they’re watching, with a free beer if correct. Also, patrons can enter a raffle with three prizes to be drawn during half-time in the World Cup final: an authentic tournament ball, one shirt and two tickets for a Corinthia Hotel Budapest Sunday Brunch.
Döry promises plenty of Brazilian flair on the terrace with some artistic shows and happy hour from 6-8pm, when all drinks will be 20% off. There will be a football table and an Xbox 360 for gamers. Summed up: grilled meat, creative cocktails and the beautiful game.
Let the fun begin!
